I’ll be on vacation for a week and a half in Crested Butte, CO and my next FTP test is scheduled right in the middle of the trip. I’m wondering how best to adjust my FTP and training?
I live in Austin, TX at ~650’ elevation and I’ll be at ~9,000’ during my trip, which I expect will have a meaningful impact on my test. Also, I always ramp test on an indoor trainer, which I won’t have with me.
I’m thinking of subbing a 20 min outdoor test, for the fun/experience of it and since I’ll have a bike and power meter with me.
That said, I’m really questioning if I would want to base my next training block off the results, given so much will be different from my normal testing method. I’m leaning toward just maintaining my current FTP from the previous test.
Any thoughts or recommendations on how to handle this? Thanks in advance.
